Unfortunately, I think the proliferation of TVs and stereos has
done a lot to erode intelligence and promote mindlessness
in our society. Back when I was a kid, mothers used to read
bed-time stories to pre-schoolers. That did a lot to promote
literacy and verbal skills. These days it's too easy to just set
'em down in front of the TV.
